The buttercream 101 class was exactly what I was looking for to perfect my piping skills on cupcakes. The class was led by Veronica, who was really helpful, informative and friendly and Veronica showed us many different piping techniques. There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere in the academy which made the whole experience so enjoyable. Good value for money too, would really recommend.

This workshop was fantastic - I've never had success with piping and was so surprised with what we were able to achieve in the workshop. Our teacher was super knowledgeable and lovely. Definitely recommend!

It was easy to book (as a gift). My wife said she enjoyed it. She learned about the different types of ingredients to use. There was one participant who came in late and disrupted the class however this was a minor distraction.

The teacher was great and prompt to explain and answer questions. Really helpful and kind.
The products were great and well presented and prepared.
I just think it should have been taught the traditional buttercream and explained more about how to fix mistakes and then the variations of it.
But it was a good class.
